Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Cask at the Craft Beer Co., London. Pours dark brown with a huge, light tan head. Sour dark malt nose, with some dough and tart cherries. Nice flavor, medium sweet, with mild roasted malts, tart cherries definitely, some tart and borderline sour dark malts. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation, very smooth. Decent if moderate cherry character in the finish, slightly tart, with some dark sugars. Not bad.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2011
Craft Beer Co. Cask handpull. Too dark cherry too hoppy and its the hop that gives it up here. Love Fyne ales but if you want a sweetish dark cherry and dark choc beer then hops are too much for this beer. Good condition good beer. Sweet dark cherry but too much hops that dont marry with the sweetness.

Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2011
Cask at CP&K. It pours dark ruby, with a decent beige head. The nose is bitter-sweet, sweet cherry, caramel and roasted malt. The taste is caramel, resin, sweet cherry, roasted malt, tangy fruit, touch of smoke, leather and wood, with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and slightly syrupy mouth-feel. Ok, but not my sort of thing.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Salmon Leicester. A near black coloured beer with a ruby hue, and a tight off-white head and lacing. A really good stout with great cherry flavours. A good length. The cherries really work with the roasty malts. A top tasting beer.

downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2011
On gravity at the Factoberfest, the Tobacco Factory, Bristol 17/09/2011. Near black with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of sour cherries, bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Flavour began with some berry fruit sweetness, before more chocolate, a touch of liquorice and tart finish. Excellent.

3.6
Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2011
(Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, London, 23 Nov 2011) Reddish brown colour with foamy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit, caramel and sour cherries. A hint of cinnamon? Malty, roasted taste with oak wood, vanilla, sour cherries and a bitter-sweet finish with a touch of chocolate. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Interesting and quite different. Not everyone will like it, but after some contemplating I found it very nice.

2.6
jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Cask. Dark with red highlights. Very flat in appearance with virtually no head. The nose is sweet, cherry is absolutely present. The taste is acerbic. An initial rush of cherry sweetness is then balanced with the smoky flavors of the stout. The palate is too thin for my liking watery. This is an interesting conversation piece, but I don’t like it all that much. The jekyll and hyde flavoring needs to resolved.

4.1
Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 27, 2011
Factobefest 2011. Plenty of black cherry and plain chocolate on the nose the ruby brown beer and a cherry yoghurt flavour with a dry and fruity finish.

3.5
JohnRMurdoch (4876) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2011
Cask @ The Bon Accord. Very dark brown colour, reasonable head. Chocolate malt aroma. Unusual spicy flavour with cherry aftertaste. Not normally a stout fan but this is a good one.
